Thread: Best Software for Curved Text

  1. #1

    Default Best Software for Curved Text

    Hi

    What is the best (preferably free) software for making curved text for map labels? I am using GIMP and I am fully aware of the technique for that software, and have mastered it to do it routinely, but I find it very inconvenient, time-consuming and tiring.

    Do you know of any add-ons, plug-ins, or just normal features of GIMP and/or other programs which make this an easy simple task?


    Thanks

    Inkscape is what you're looking for.

    When I need curved text for photoshop I do the text in Illustrator and just copy it over once it looks right. You can probably use a similar process to go from Inkscape to GIMP. Vectors are so friendly!

    cheers,

    Most every image editor and vector application can do this easily, though I find vector applications do it more quickly, easily and is always editable. Some applications can't do this, but those that can do so easily, so is there a best program for curved text - not really.
